UPDATE: 2018 West Seattle Grand Parade, as it started/ended

10:49 AM: The 2018 West Seattle Grand Parade is on! The Seattle Police Motorcycle Drill Team has taken off, with the Vancouver B.C. PD motorcycles following – and then after a bit of a pause, the rest of the parade (with the PAWrade in The Junction in the meantime).

11:11 AM: And now that the motorcycle teams have made it far enough down the route, the rest of the parade has begun, with the Troop 284 honor guard:

Watch our Twitter feed for updates (you can access it via the Web – you don’t have to be a Twitter member); we’ll also update this report when the parade has concluded and California SW has reopened.

12:11 PM: After an hour, the parade has ended at the start line – the parade coordinators, judges, and chair are traveling down the street at the end. But it’ll be a while until the conclusion in The Junction (we have a crew there too).

1:10 PM: The parade is now over at the ending point (California/Edmunds), too. As always, lots more coverage to come in separate reports, with photos and video.

    Great to see Capt. Davis circulating the crowd and the motorcycle cop routine was impressive…  You have to have serious hours on a bike and quite a bit of confidence to ride their routine with packed sidewalks.  Unfortunately, we always have to try to race home before the cannon gets too close…  We hate the cannon…

    LOVE the cannon- -FYI- when you hear the siren- cover your ears

      Saw county councilmember Joe McDermott with the 34th Dems but did not see the county executive. Not marching, anyway. Maybe he and his daughter were spectators!

Sorry, comment time is over.
